The collaborating artists were asked to approach again this timeless topic in the History of Arts illustrating their own contemporary meaning and expressions in aspects that address the topic within social, political, religious and self- existence coordinates. We looked deeply at provoking questions such as: Is Paradise a concept that is eternal or time-bounded, situated on earth or heaven, a personal reward or a granted right? This exhibition sets a framework of individual and collective explorations with the effort to also address their interconnections. Impressions on guilt, shame, temptation, misbehavior, but also perfection, euphoria, and our connection to nature are addressed. As the borders on these concepts are constantly moving or redefined, we search for the ideal contemporary definitions of Paradise through the modern pallet. The artists through their personal search, agonies, and reflections provide the views to plot a reference canvas for our questions on Paradise as a journey on self-existence, and an effort to look esoterically for our placement in today’s life.
